Supplies Used in this Make Cotton Candy Ornaments Tutorial

  • Paper cones
  • Styrofoam balls
  • Pink Tulle
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • White Paint

Start by painting the paper mache cones white. I painted them once, let it dry, then painted them again. When the cones are completely dry, hot glue a styrofoam ball inside it. Choose a ball that will fit right in the top of the cone without falling in.

Hot glue the end of the tulle to the base of the ball. Start wrapping the ball very loosely with the tulle. Continue until the cotton candy is as full and fluffy as you want it to be. Use a dot of hot glue to tuck the end of the tulle into the cone and glue it in place.

Glue a string loop to the back of the cotton candy. You can use these like I did, as ornaments, or string them together to make a fun banner for a party. I hope you’ll enjoy all twelve of my family friendly crafts! See the list below for all of the projects.
